JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - The operator of a Jackson tax preparation business has been charged with 123 counts of fraud after being accused of preparing false income tax returns, most of them with bogus claims of dependents.

The office of Edward L. Stanton, the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Tennessee, said 42-year-old Carol Munoz of Jackson has been indicted on charges of preparing false and fraudulent tax returns, operating an unlicensed money-transmitting business and money laundering.

Court documents do not yet show an attorney listed for Munoz.

Munoz is accused of preparing 123 fraudulent tax returns from April 15, 2010, to April 16, 2013. According to the indictment, the returns claimed false dependents and tax credits and child care credits so the filers could get a larger income tax refund.
